'Not a mask in sight': thousands flock to Yellowstone as park reopens
Yellowstone, America’s oldest national park, and the nearby Grand Teton national park are the most recent to have partially reopened with the support of the Trump administration.
“I hope everybody is listening,” Donald Trump announced earlier in May. “The parks are opening, and rapidly, actually.”
While many have celebrated the reopening of the revered landscapes, others have raised health concerns about large, possibly maskless, groups of out-of-state visitors arriving and potentially skirting social distancing guidelines.
“We checked the webcam at Old Faithful at about 3.30pm yesterday,” said Kristin Brengel, the senior vice-president of government affairs at the National Parks Conservation Association. “Not much physical distancing happening and not a single mask in sight.”

Coronavirus-panicked dad locks son out of house after spring break trip
Two weeks ago, Matt Levine’s immediate concerns centered on where to find the best happy hour and coolest DJ. Now, he just wants his coronavirus-panicked dad to let him back in the house.
While residents in his hometown of Nanuet, NY, were hunkering down to avoid corona, 21-year-old Matt and his friends from Springfield College in Massachusetts hit up spring break in South Padre Island, Texas — and stayed there against the advice of his father, Peter Levine.
“I spoke with him every day and told him that maybe they should come home,” Peter, 52, and a salesman, told The Post. “I was aggravated. The news here was getting worse and worse. Matt sent me pictures of him and his friends congregating outdoors and listening to live music. It’s the scene you would not want to be in.”
Finally, Peter told Matt and his buddies that they could not stay at the family home after the trip, as they’d planned. “His grandparents live here and there is no need to expose them to god knows what he had been exposed to!” Peter explained.

Kids and parents are freaking out over no-gift birthday parties
For her daughter’s first birthday party at a bright indoor playspace, Melanie Okadigwe asked guests to pass on the piles of presents.
“We just have a lot of stuff,” says the school learning specialist from Prospect Lefferts Gardens. Besides, her daughter Twyla, now 2, “wasn’t playing with a lot of toys” at that point, anyway.
Children’s birthday presents are joining chain restaurants, American cheese and diamond engagement rings on the growing list of millennial casualties. Space-starved moms and dads are saying “thank you, next” to physical gifts, requesting their guests make charitable donations, give money or simply offer nothing at all. These proud, party-pooper parents say it helps them cut down on clutter and keeps their kids grateful for the toys they do have.
